Our unbeaten start to the Premier League 2 campaign was extended after a 1-0 win over Tottenham on Monday evening. That result means the Blues have now won seven of their 13 games, conceding only 14 goals in the process.

Opposition form

Man City sit ninth in the table on 15 points. Three wins in their last five games, including victories over Liverpool and Tottenham, will act as a confidence booster for the team ahead of their visit to Aldershot. Dutch Winger Jayden Braaf, who is City’s top goalscorer on six goals, found the net when we last met in August’s 2-2 draw.

Team news

Andy Myers will be without defender and captain Marc Guehi, who yesterday (Friday) completed a loan move to Championship side Swansea for the remainder of the season. Billy Gilmour may return to the side having missed out on Monday night due to illness.
